    but i like the sound. anyways, since you guys threw out a bunch of good ideas, i thought i'd throw out the latest in the plan:
    a guy who buys from me owns one of the nicer restaurants in lubbock. we were talking to him about it and he offered to clear his place of tables on a saturday basically early until about 430 b/c he opens at 530. free of charge, everyone knows where it is, he'd kind of word-of-mouth advertise to the poeple who come in. he insisted he get nothing, though i would obviously give him something for it, and he said if it totally flops then i'm not out a rental of a place. he's closed all of monday so if it went well i could do it on a monday too. any opinions on that idea? i kinda like it

    Well, there's really no big risk for you. I'd say go for it. You'll be out some time, labor and advertising. He benefits by piggy-backing your advertising and getting new people through his door. Perhaps he would be interested in you giving out some sort of promotional coupon for his restaurant with each purchase.
